Czech Basic Course.
Foreign Service (Dept. of State), Washington, DC. Foreign Service Inst.
This introductory Czech text is based on principles emphasizing development of basic communication skills. Speech samples reflect practical language spoken in everyday situations. The text is designed to be used by American foreign service professionals in foreign countries and to be accompanied by videotapes (unavailable to the public). The text consists of 26 lessons organized in four segments, each ending with a review lesson. Lessons consist of lists of communication and grammar goals for the lesson, additional material to be used, explanation of the listening activity, other activities in some lessons, a sample dialogue and related exercises, a brief narrative and exercises, pronunciation drills, grammar notes, brief readings, and a vocabulary list. An introductory section suggests a sequence of activities for teaching the lessons and provides a lesson and page index to grammatical structure. Lessons are addressed to students, but are intended for an intensive language course and therefore are not suitable for self-study. Many activities require teacher participation. (MSE)
